End of Support for Microsoft Outlook 2007

Ten years on from its release in January 2007, Microsoft will be ending support for Outlook 2007 tomorrow, Tuesday 10 October 2017. Outlook 2007 users will, therefore, need to update to a more recent version of Outlook.  

At Vuzion, we’re recommending upgrade to one of the following:

Outlook 2016* – Microsoft’s most recently released version of Outlook for managing email, calendar and contacts.

Microsoft Office 365 Business or Office 365 Pro Plus – incorporating the Office 2016 suite of software (Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Outlook), Office 365 Business also includes OneDrive for Business, while Office 365 Pro Plus offers additional features.

Microsoft Office 365 Business Premium or Office 365 Enterprise E3 – moving from a hosted exchange service to the Microsoft 365 platform, these options will give users a new Outlook experience, as well as the full, automatically updating version of Microsoft Office applications and services, plus OneDrive for Business cloud storage, Exchange Online, SharePoint Online, Skype for Business and Yammer.  

*Certain older versions of Office software, such as Office 2007, may be incompatible with current versions of Outlook (which include 2013 as well as 2016).

At Vuzion, we’re extending use of Outlook 2007 for Vuzion partners’ customers using Outlook 2007, to Wednesday 31 January 2018. This means that these partner’s customers will be able to continue to send and receive emails, organise contacts and calendars until 31 January 2018. However, after 10 October 2017, there will be no support for the software from Microsoft, and we’re, therefore, advising that customers select the most appropriate upgrade for their business sooner, rather than later.

Julian Dyer, Cobweb CTO, says, “With Microsoft Outlook 2007 end of life, this is an opportunity for businesses to remove old-fashioned legacy services and look at the opportunities for a substantial refresh.

“It’s also important to note that upgrade choice may also be affected by other software that your customers have running – but the Vuzion Team will be able to advise on all of this.”

For more information about Outlook 2007 end of life and the options available for upgrade, contact any of the Vuzion team on 0333 009 6042 – or you can email partners@vuzion.cloud, or use our Microsoft Outlook 2007 end of support contact form.
